The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office charged a woman, named Bridgette Hene Fowler, after she left her baby in a hot vehicle at a Dollar General in Woodruff back in September, according to investigative reports.

Deputies stated the temperatures were approximately up to 93 degrees on Sept. 14. when Fowler left the infant in the car outside the store on New Woodruff Road.

According to the Sheriff’s Office report, the six-month-old child was found in a car parked on the middle of a parking lot with no shade around. It also says the windows were rolled up and the infant’s car seat was still in the rear of the vehicle.

Deputies said that as soon as they responded to the case, the mother of the infant just got out of the store.

Deputies stated the infant was sweating and in distress from the heat. Before the EMS arrived, they ask the mother to place the child in the front seat of a patrol car to cool her down.

Deputies said the temperature in Fowler's car was 90 degrees.

After an investigation, warrants were signed on Nov. 17 charging Fowler with unlawful neglect on a child.  Fowler was arrested on Monday, according to online jail records.
